Live Bands

Heavy Duck, Little Mono, Air Drawn Dagger

On Wednesday I got my first ever request for some photos through the contact form. Joe from Little Mono wanted someone to come and take some photos of their gig at The Green Room. This was an interesting gig. The bands started before 9 and there was no stage, instead just the corner of the bar right in front of some large windows with no gig lighting. This meant that for both Air Drawn Dagger and Little Mono, they were backlit by bright sunlight and very little else!

I experimented with the inbuilt flash on my camera but quickly abandoned that, instead setting the camera up for dark shooting and trying to get low enough to cut out some of the direct lighting. Interestingly, on quite a few of the photographs, you could cut out most of the harsh backlighting in Lightroom by pulling the highlights bar significantly without affecting the rest of the shot much.

Despite the rather ‘challenging’ (for me anyway) environment, this set include what I think its my favourite photo so far, the black and white shot of Maisie from Air Drawn Dagger.

Yep. Let me know which ones and I’ll sort you hi-res shots which you can resize. I can leave the watermark on, or take it off for them if you want.
